Our school library is beginning something new. When students check out their library book they are given a large plastic ziplock style bag to keep their book in. The bag is labeled with CES library. The purpose of the bag is to protect books when they are inside back packs from getting torn, wet, or having something spill on them inside backpacks. Thank you very much to the PTO for providing these protective bags! #WeLoveBooks
Report Cards came home today in your child’s blue communication folder. We are excited to share the amazing progress our Little Eagles are making!
